What is Purslane?
Purslane is a green, leafy vegetable that can be eaten raw or cooked.
It is known scientifically as Portulaca oleracea, and is also called pigweed, little hogweed, fatweed and pusley.
This succulent plant contains about 93% water. It has red stems and small, green leaves. It has a slightly sour or salty taste, similar to spinach and watercress.
It can be used in many of the same ways as spinach and lettuce, such as in salads or sandwiches.
Purslane grows in many parts of the world, in a wide range of environments.
Purslane has a long history of use in traditional/alternative medicine (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source).
It is also high in many nutrients. A 100 gram (3.5 oz) portion contains (5Trusted Source):
Vitamin A (from beta-carotene): 26% of the DV.
Vitamin C: 35% of the DV.
Magnesium: 17% of the DV.
Manganese: 15% of the DV.
Potassium: 14% of the DV.
Iron: 11% of the DV.
Calcium: 7% of the RDI.
It also contains small amounts of vitamins B1, B2, B3, folate, copper and phosphorus.
You get all of these nutrients with only 16 calories! This makes it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, calorie for calorie.
Purslane is High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are important fats that the body cannot produce.
Therefore, we must get them from the diet.
While purslane is low in total fat, a large portion of the fat it does contain is in the form of omega-3 fatty acids.
In fact, it contains two types of omega-3 fatty acids, ALA and EPA. ALA is found in many plants, but EPA is found mostly in animal products (like fatty fish) and algae.
Compared to other greens, it is exceptionally high in ALA. It contains 5-7 times more ALA than spinach (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).
Interestingly, it also contains trace amounts of EPA. This omega-3 fat is more active in the body than ALA, and is generally not found in plants that grow on land (6Trusted Source).
Purslane is much higher in omega-3 fatty acids than other greens. It contains high amounts of ALA, but also trace amounts of EPA, a more biologically active form of omega-3.
